Email marketing company Reachmail has put together a really cool infograhpic that shows why it…
It’s always hard to let go of something that has been around for a while. Ever since we opened TheLocalBrand.com for public submissions we’ve been receiving some exceptional articles and infographics from various walks of business. We’ve had the privilege of getting some superb infographic submissions through our open submission form specifically designed for the purpose. In many ways you’ve probably found the submission forms especially useful if you did not want to sign up. The open forms allow you to submit without the need to create an account on TLB.
TLB maintains a list of content submission forms including the Research Submission and the Brand Nomination forms. For post submissions we have a two way system for the convenience of contributors. You can either submit your posts by logging into your account and adding a new post or you can use an open form without logging in. So far, we maintained two different open forms for post submissions, one for submitting articles and the other for submitting infographics. However, we are now letting go of the infographics submission form and merging it with the article form. It just makes more sense. Since the function of both the forms are essentially the same, there is no need to use separate forms for each type of posts.
About 3 years ago when we started TLB, infographics were a novelty. We used to wonder if the next post that is submitted will be an article or an infographic! There were so few contributors who created infographics back then. Over the time, submissions increased. We debated whether we should make a separate form for infographics. We just thought it might be cool. Although, the infographic submission form was all too specific, it turned out to be quite popular among contributors. It gave us the confidence to create an entire section of infographic posts. Today, this section probably has the richest content on our site. We owe it to our contributors and to the trusty form that received countless submissions in past few years. Sadly, we are retiring the form now in favour of simplicity. The new form has both the rich text editor for text based articles as well as an image uploader for infographics. To use it, you still don’t need to sign up.
The internal submission form for registered users is also upgraded and we have fixed a technical issue with it that made it difficult to edit the posts after publishing. I hope that you’ll appreciate the new changes and like the improved blogging experience. If you do not have an account on TLB, then I would ask you to create one so that your posts are attributed to you. It’s good for your authorship. It is found that posts with original authors receive a higher number of views on an average.
Stay Tuned For More Updates
We are starting some amazing new features on our website and we’ll announce them in the course of next few months. You might have noticed that we have recreated some of the sections of the website to appear in a different layout than the main site. That is because we identified those sections as serving a more focused purpose. Your user profile and directory are now in a more readable and distraction free layout. We’ve also added new promotion tools for promoting your brand. The new promote section has a much simpler interface with fully developed eCommerce integration. You can now hire content writing and design services to amplify your brand. Do checkout our promotional plans that are carefully designed to assist you in creating a content based campaign unlike any other platform.
